Glenda Naranjo


Artist Profile

Glenda Naranjo, “Cloth Stick Flower”, was born in 1953 into the Santa Clara-Tewa Pueblo. Glenda was inspired to continue the long lived tradition of hand coiling pottery from her late mother, Flora Naranjo. Flora taught Glenda the fundamentals of working with clay and the use of ancient methods to construct her pottery. Glenda has been working with clay since the age of 10.

Glenda specializes in hand coiling traditional black on black and red Santa Clara pottery. Her patterns include the Water Serpent and Feather diagrams. She hand coils a wide variety of sizes and shapes of traditional pottery. Glenda enjoys working with clay and feels that in doing so, she proudly adds to the art world and continues the long lived legacy of her people. She also teaches her immediate family to construct the beautiful pottery her Pueblo is famous for making. She signs her pottery: Glenda Naranjo, SCP. Glenda is related to Frances Salazar, Barbara Martinez, Vickie Martinez and Sammy Naranjo.
